Florida's quote of the day

| 3/5/2013

" I think it’s the people who promote themselves as being perfect who have to worry about privacy."

-- Shaquille O'Neal

» Four years ago, I went to Walter Reed hospital to see some of the troops. I saw a guy with both of his legs cut off, and he had the biggest smile on his face. He told me in front of everybody, he said, ‘Hey, I’m waiting for my legs to come back’ — he was waiting on some of those robotic legs — ‘and then I want to go back to Iraq.’ I was like, ‘damn.’ From that day on, I decided I’m not complaining about nothing.

» I don’t worry about my privacy. I don’t promote myself as being perfect. I think it’s the people who promote themselves as being perfect who have to worry about privacy.

» A friend of mine was running for sheriff in Lake County, Sandy Carpenter. He unfortunately lost. If he had won, I was going to apply for the undersheriff’s job.
